COLUMBIA – The South Carolina State Museum is full of exciting spring happenings, from Spring Break camps to an exciting new spring deal to see the new planetarium show, free, starting March 31-April 30.
The immensity and power of black holes inspire wonder and curiosity and they’re the subject of the museum’s new full-dome planetarium show Black Holes, now playing in the BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Planetarium. This planetarium show brings to life all that is fascinating, frightening and extreme in the world of black holes.
I’m excited for guests to witness what would happen if you got too close to a black hole,” says Liz Klimek, museum planetarium manager. “Viewers will discover what science has taught us about these phenomena, and what we must still learn.”
Black Holes is narrated by John de Lancie, best known for his role as Q in the television series, Star Trek, and will take guests on a 35 minute, mind-bending journey of spaghettification that will bring them face to face with these strange and enigmatic denizens of the cosmos. Guests can see this exciting new show free with the purchase of an Explorer 2 pass, from March 31 until April 30.
